These organic soapnuts are a great, natural way to wash your laundry. Soapnuts, also known as soapberries, are dried fruit shells harvested from soapberry trees normally in India. When they come in contact with water, they release a natural soap called saponin which has amazing cleaning properties. Soapnuts are vegan and hypoellergenic, making them perfect for those who suffer from sensitive skin.
This bag comes with two wash pouches and 1kg of nuts will last over 300 washes. We chose Greenfrog Botanic as our soapnut supplier because they use certified organic ingredients and leaping bunny certified (cruelty free)!
How to use
Simply put 5-10 soapberry shells in the small cotton pouch and tie is closed. Pop the pouch in the washing machine with your laundry and wash as normal.
If you choose a warm or hot water setting, the saponin (soap) will be released and spread throughout your clothes. However, if you plan to wash on a cold water cycle, you will need to soak the soapberries in the pouch in hot water beforehand for several minutes and pour the soapberries with the water in the washing machine.
Washing in warm water is the best option, which will allow more reuse of the same soapnuts. Soapnuts are suitable for both white laundry and colours. They might struggle with stubborn stains, which may need pre-treatment but they're great for normal loads.
You can reuse the same shells 305 times, until they become thin and lose their colour. Once you are finished with the soapnuts, simply pop them in your food waste or compost!
Many major brands of both dishwasher and washing up soap are derived from crude oil and contain petrochemicals. These, along with other nasty ingredients, enter our waterways and eventually our oceans.
Chemical pollution is well documented, and we all need to do our bit to stop the constant leaching of unnecessary chemicals into nature.
